Help pushing a tree back into Norway, for those familiar with the language and BDM sources.

+2 votes
I have entered all the details I can find for this family, from records which I have found in Australia, but it appears, to be able to continue back further, I will need assistance with someone familiar with Norwegian, and where to get Norwegian sources. Help would be greatly welcome. With any luck, hopefully we will strike into a tree which someone else has already entered.

Sadly, my reading skills are slipping. Here's a Ole Andreas born to an Ole in 1840 in Stavanger, but i don't get Ingebor for the mom. Maybe someone who can read those old records can do better. parish records

This Ole Andreas' mother is Ellen Frederikke Fredriksdtr.
Then that is the right birth. It's line 114, born 28 Mar 1840 christened 5 Apr 1840. Father is Ole Andreas (2 words i can't read) Mother is Ellen Fredereke Fredriksdatter.
Marriage (1839 #33) 21 Jun 1839 at Stavanger Domkirke: Ole Andreas Olsen, 28 from Stavanger,  and Ellen Frederikke Fredericksen, 32 from Christiansand.

I am not an expert, nor Norwegian (sad but true) but I love this site:

Give it a whirl! I am sure the Norwegian experts will add even more assistance.
